Braves | Jonny Gomes batting sixth

Fri, 03 Jul 2015 12:27:35 -0700

Atlanta Braves OF Jonny Gomes is playing left field and batting six against Philadelphia Phillies SP Adam Morgan Friday, July 3.

Fantasy Tip: Gomes ($2,500, 5.0% of cap) has a .420 on-base percentage against southpaws this season, and he has historically had success against lefties. FantasyScore players should view Gomes as a low-end flier for contests Friday. His seasonal value is minimal, even in NL-only and cavernous mixed leagues.

Braves | Kelly Johnson out of the lineup

Sun, 28 Jun 2015 08:06:08 -0700

Atlanta Braves OF Kelly Johnson is not in the starting lineup against Pittsburgh Pirates SP Jeff Locke Sunday, June 28. OF Jonny Gomes will start in left field and is batting seventh in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Johnson ($3,400, 6.8% of cap) probably is sitting out because the team is facing a left-handed pitcher. Gomes ($2,500, 5.0% of cap) has only one hit in his last eight games and is not the best option for owners on FantasyScore.

Braves | Jonny Gomes has sore quad

Thu, 18 Jun 2015 15:58:06 -0700

Atlanta Braves OF Jonny Gomes (quadriceps) has a sore right quadriceps, however it is not considered serious. Gomes was not in the starting lineup against the Boston Red Sox Thursday, June 18.

Fantasy Tip: Gomes ($2,500, 5.0% of cap) is struggling this season with a .210/.294/.328 slash line and just 18 runs, three home runs and 11 RBI over 136 plate appearances. The right-handed hitter has been better against lefties, though, with a respectable .271/.432/.406 slash line. FantasyScore players should limit their exposure to when Gomes faces a favorable southpaw.

Mon, 15 Jun 2015 13:38:30 -0700

Atlanta Braves OF Kelly Johnson will serve as the designated hitter against Boston Red Sox SP Rick Porcello Monday, June 15. OF Jonny Gomes will start in left field and is batting eighth in the starting lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Johnson ($3,400, 6.8% of cap) has picked up six hits and three RBI in four games since returning from injury. Owners could consider Johnson as a starting option on FantasyScore. Gomes ($2,500, 5.0% of cap) has picked up at least one hit in four of his last five games but is hitting only .214 on the season and may not be a great option for owners.

Braves | Kelly Johnson not in lineup

Fri, 12 Jun 2015 13:52:40 -0700

Atlanta Braves OF Kelly Johnson is not in the starting lineup Friday, June 12. OF Jonny Gomes is starting in left field and hitting seventh against New York Mets SP Bartolo Colon.

Fantasy Tip: Gomes ($2,500, 5.0% of cap) hasn't done much at all in 2015 (.206-3-11 in 107 at-bats), but he is 8-for-24 (.333) with three home runs and three RBI in his career against Colon, who has been much worse at Citi Field this season. Consider Gomes worthy of attention as a deep sleeper to save you valuable cap space on FantasyScore.

Braves | Todd Cunningham out of Tuesday lineup

Tue, 09 Jun 2015 12:31:04 -0700

Atlanta Braves OF Todd Cunningham is not starting Tuesday, June 9, against the San Diego Padres. OF Jonny Gomes is batting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: With James Shields pitching for the Padres, it appears Cunningham ($1,700, 3.4% of cap) is taking a seat. Of course, a .107 batting average at Turner Field doesn't help, either. Gomes ($2,500, 5.0% of cap) carries a .214 batting average in the past week, so he should be left alone on the bench.

Braves | Jonny Gomes hitting seventh

Sat, 06 Jun 2015 13:39:12 -0700

Atlanta Braves OF Jonny Gomes will start in left field and bat seventh in the order Saturday, June 6, against the Pittsburgh Pirates. OF Todd Cunningham will come out of the starting lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Gomes ($2,500, 5.0% of cap) is hitting a more than respectable .286 against left-handed pitchers this season, and he should be considered against Pirates LHP Jeff Locke. Gomes has walked six times and been struck out on just nine occasions in 37 plate appearances against southpaws this season.

Braves | Jonny Gomes draws in

Tue, 02 Jun 2015 16:31:15 -0700

Atlanta Braves OF Jonny Gomes will start in left field and hit seventh in the order Tuesday, June 2, against the Arizona Diamondbacks. OF Cameron Maybin comes out of the starting lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Gomes ($2,500, 5.0% of cap) is a boom or bust FantasyScore option, who relies on his power for fantasy production as he owns a low batting average and a low on-base percentage. FantasyScore owners can find far safer options.
